The WMG SME Group at the University of Warwick has announced its specialist internship programme for SMEs
In response to helping businesses overcome some of the barriers that can reduce or limit business growth, especially those relating to skills and employment, the WMG SME Group at the University of Warwick has announced its specialist internship programme for SMEs. The programme is aimed at small and medium sized enterprises looking for additional expertise and resource to overcome a range of strategic and technical business challenges.
The internship programme is available to manufacturing SME businesses, and those directly involved in the UK manufacturing supply chain. An internship usually lasts for eight weeks and is based around the employment of a talented student or graduate to deliver the project, in-house, with part-funded assistance (four weeks) and ongoing supervision from the WMG SME Group. Participating SMEs will also have access to selected equipment and technology at WMG.
The internship projects will need to align with the Group’s core areas of expertise covering manufacturing, materials, product development, digital systems, Industry 4.0 and automation.
Southam-based Silson Ltd, who conducted one of the internship programmes last year involving intern Carmen Sanchez de Rojas, deemed the programme a huge success with their Managing Director, Peter Anastasi commenting, “We were highly impressed by Carmen’s ability and have found the use of WMG SME Group’s internship programme very valuable. We are excited by the potential new products Carmen has been working on which should lead to increased growth in our business.”
